MY DRESS: Marissa Webb // LIPSTICK: MAC ‘Saint Germain’Β // BRACELET: J Crew // SWADDLE: Lou Lou and Company // BUTTERFLY ORNAMENTS: High Fashion Home

These photos were taken the other day! Atticus came on the bed when he saw me and Rosie snuggling and came to join πŸ™‚ we watched some Curious George and snuggled on our Rosie girl. I got this dress while I was pregnant and it never looked quite right with my bump so I was excited to finally be able to wear it. Since its cold out I just wore it around the house haha. It really is sooo cold outside! We tried taking Atticus to the park because we were so cooped up and that was a bad idea – it was the first time he came over to us and looked at us like “lets go home” which is very unlike my mister A. We started decorating Rosie’sΒ nursery/the guest room now that everyone has gone home and I am sooo excited for how its gonna turn out. Hopefully its like I am picturing in my head. We are working with Becki OwensΒ (here is her blog) who I am obsessed with for some other rooms in our apartment because I will be the first to admit that decorating is hard for me and I love what she has drafted up! I have all these visions in my head and sometimes it doesnt turn out how I wanted — which is unfortunate because decorating is EXPENSIVE so I am glad to be working with her this time around! We will definitely do an apartment tour once all the rooms are done. We have a tiny room in the house which is technically the third bedroom but it was used a room for the maid back in the day so its insanely small.. like Harry Potter under the stairs small! So David said “it should just be your walk in closet” and I at first felt bad/selfish and tried suggesting other ideas but he kept saying it was the only thing that made sense for that space so I said OKAY I WILL HAVE A WALK IN CLOSET!!! πŸ™‚ I sure love that husband. So anyways, we ended up converting the dining room into a third bedroom because who needs a dining room in NYC? I feel like that is such wasted space to have a whole room with just a table in it.

Anyways, we just got to Vermont for a snow trip with some friends of ours! So follow on insta to see our pics!

  1. I love the picture where Atticus’ arm is under Miss Rosie!! So precious. That’s so fun that you’re getting settled into the new apartment and getting it all decorated! I feel like decorating is such a process!! I remember when we first bought our house having all these great plans and ideas of what we could do in there and we are still working on it! Room by room!

    1. Aww thank you!! I love that one!!! And yes! We are loving all the extra space! I can’t wait until all the decorating is done πŸ™‚ I am sure we will have never ending projects too haha! It’s so hard!

  2. Oh, these pictures are the cutest!! But also – very dangerous. I have a son, almost Atticus’ age – and I’m definitely getting a “baby fever” looking at these pics πŸ™‚ Hmm.. I wonder if there is an expression to “baby fever” in English..

    Also I cannot imagine, how you can look so beautiful (the make up and the hair) like.. daily πŸ˜€ An impossibility for me! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks so much!! I love looking back at these πŸ™‚ And oh my goodness yes! Baby fever is definitely real! I hear ya!

    1. Right?! He got major brownie points for that one haha πŸ˜‰ I am so excited for it!!

  3. How precious are those photos of you and your little ones. I wish my husband was as talented as yours! I am the one in our household taking the pics so I have too few pics of me with my 3. If you pop to London, send your hubby across for a shoot;) Seriously, I am really enjoying all those beautiful photos of your sweet family. And obviously you look radiant, yummy mummy! Love from London!

    1. Aww thank you Julie!! I adore them! And picture taking isn’t for every hubby so I totally get it πŸ˜‰ I am sure we will be back to London sometime in the future!! Thanks again for the kind words!! xoxo

  4. I love love these sweet photos! You are all just so precious πŸ™‚ I’m so excited for Rosie’s new room too – decorating is also difficult for me so congrats on getting a pro πŸ˜‰ David is the best, a walk-in closet sounds amazing. You deserve it!


    1. Thank you so much doll!! You are too nice πŸ™‚ Love ya Quinn!! Stay tuned for the final product! xo



    HOW BIRTH WEIGHT SUB- in ? AND WHAT IS RIGHT career height and weight ? SO PLEASE REPLY I was wondering , can you ?

    1. Hi!! Thanks so much for the nice comment πŸ™‚ And Rosie’s birth weight was just over 8lbs! A perfect size!! xo

  6. Hi! Love all of your amazing photos and posts. Any chance you think you or David could do a Lightroom tutorial on how you edit your photos? I love photography and I would love to learn Lightroom techniques from you both!

    1. Thanks so much Ali!! I appreciate the suggestion!! We will definitely keep the idea in mind πŸ™‚ xoxo

  7. I love those butterflies! I can’t wait to see everything completed. Yes, you are right. Many things don’t come out as planned, but it will look just as amazing as you imagined! I’m so jealous you are having fun in the snow ???? We live in Eastern CT so we don’t have snow. I’m starting to miss the Cali weather that my sister and I were just enjoying for the last 2 weeks. Well anyways have a fabulous weekend! Much love from my sister and I ????

    1. Thank you Emily!! We are excited for everything to get done so we can share it πŸ™‚ And so true!! You can’t plan out everything, and I am especially learning that with kiddos haha! Thanks again for the comment!! Have a great rest of your week!!! xo

  10. Beautiful photos ! I’m in love with little Rosie and Atticus ! You help me each day how to do braids ! Thanks! Have a nice day , by your brazilian fan !

    1. Thanks so much!! And yay! I am so happy to hear that πŸ™‚ Thanks for following along!! xo

  11. Such sweet pics of your snuggle time. Warms my heart. I am looking forward to seeing how your apartment comes together! I feel exactly the same way… I always have tons of fun ideas, but it’s so hard turning decor ideas into a reality. Especially on a budget. Can’t wait!! xoxox

  12. You have a wonderful beautiful family. Those butterflies my goodness. I think I’ll get myself some I’m also a huge butterfly fan. I made a butterfly mobile for my bedroom n I’ll be honored if you let me make one for Rosie girl your choice of color. I instagramed you and David of how they look like. (Barefootapple)
    God bless your family.

    Melina xoxo

  13. Oh my goodness! I totally love this! It actually makes me wicked sad- we did butterflies for my now three year old’s nursery! It is such a sweet, girly look. We got most of our stuff at pottery barn kids- everything was more a rustic white theme though. And you are the most adorable mama in pink!
    XO, Tara

  14. I love the idea of a walk in closet. I told my husband we have to make one or have one for me one day! Even if I have to eliminate having a guest bedroom for it! oops! haha

    Also, I’m obsessed with those gold butterflies – butterflies are kind of my thing. I’m obsessed! Everyone who knows me gets me something butterfly if they see it. Its hilarious!


  15. I can’t wait to see the how Rosie’s nursery turns out. I LOVED Atticus’ old room so I’m looking forward to seeing everything else.

    stay styled,

  19. I’m a huge lover of interior design and I’m constantly redecorating my home! It is expensive but that’s my big passion and I’ve been very good at finding some awesome deals and online shops throughout the years and did get to save up quite a bunch in decor department.

  20. Love the gold butterflies! Can’t wait to see the rest of your apartment, especially that walk in closet!!

  21. AWW I haven’t been here for a while, but happy to see how beautiful the new baby is, and the interaction between both of them. Regarding the decor, is looking really nice, you can’t go wrong with gold.

  22. It’s so sweet of Atticus to come join you snuggling with Rosie. Best big brother everr!!
    I’m sure Rosie’s nursery room will turn out just the way you want it. You do fabolous hairstyles so it should be easy for you to decorate it and in a pinch you have Becki Owens by your side. Please keep on being just the way you are, cause you are perfect <3

    1. Aww thanks!! He really is so sweet with her πŸ™‚ And oh you are too kind! Thanks for the encouragement! I know I can get it done with Becki’s help for sure! She’s too good!! xo

    1. Thanks so much Abby!! I am excited to share it when it’s all done πŸ™‚

  23. Girl I totally feel you when it comes to decorating! I turn Pinterest boards into majestical home decor in my brain but when it comes to executing… I just greatly lack in that area of expertise! I can’t wait to see how Rosie’s nursery turns out, those butterflies are perfect!!

    Always the cutest pictures in the world, Amber! Take good care <3


    1. Yes!! Pinterest is a lifesaver when it comes to decorating!! I definitely need all the inspiration I can get πŸ™‚ Glad I am not the only one haha! Thanks for the nice comment!! xoxo

  29. Ah, so cute! I can’t wait to see it!
    Have a great trip!

  30. So pumped that you get a walk-in closet :). I really want one in the future. I really need to see everything. I can’t stand when stuff is folded away where I can’t see it. Also I can’t wait to see your apartment tour after your finish decorating! I feel like it would be best to have an interior decorator working with me and the bae in the future but he’s the type that’s like, “Why do we need an interior decorator?!”

    1. Yay me too!! I have never had one so I am way too excited for it πŸ™‚ And haha seriously that’s too funny!! Guys don’t get it sometimes πŸ˜‰ Thanks for the comment Thuy!! I am excited to share the final product with you!! Stay tuned!! xoxo

  31. These pics are so cute! I am the same way, I love decorating and feel like I am super creative and then when its all said and done I look at what Ive just decorated and it looks like ikea just threw up in my living room LOL not a good look. Im glad you mentioned Becki’s blog My husband and I are currently looking at new homes. There is nothing worse then a nice new home with terrible decorations LOL so I hope her blog will give me a little confidence when it comes to decorating are new nest. ps I am super jealous of your new walk in closet!! Ill have to have my hubs read this post maybe it will nudge him into giving me a spare bedroom LOL excited to see the tour when its finished!

    1. Thank you gorgeous!! So glad you like them πŸ™‚ And hahah you are hilarious!! Thanks for the laugh! I am totally relate to that! I need all the help I can!!! Thank goodness I have Becki by my side, she’s too good! And yay for home shopping!! Good luck!! xoxo
